Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth into their desired position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and offer greater comfort and convenience.
Invisalign treatment at Sandy Smiles Orthodontics begins with a consultation with Dr. Zwickle and our smile team. Using advanced 3D imaging technology, a customized treatment plan is created, mapping out the precise movements of your teeth from their current position to the desired alignment. Based on this plan, a series of clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth snugly and comfortably. You will wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks, gradually transitioning to the next set as your teeth move closer to their final position.
One of the main advantages of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them an ideal choice for individuals who prefer a more discreet orthodontic option. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease. This flexibility in lifestyle contributes to greater comfort and convenience throughout the treatment process.
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on factors such as the complexity of your case, the severity of your misalignment, and how well your adhere to wearing the aligners as prescribed. On average, treatment can last anywhere from six months to two years. During your initial consultation, your we will provide a personalized treatment plan, including an estimated timeline for your specific case.
Invisalign is suitable for most individuals with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, and certain bite alignment issues. However, severe cases may require alternative orthodontic treatments. Dr. Zwickel will assess your specific needs and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
While you may experience some initial discomfort or pressure when wearing a new set of aligners, Invisalign treatment is generally more comfortable than traditional braces. Any discomfort typically subsides within a few days as your teeth adjust to the new aligners. Over-the-counter pain relievers can typically help alleviate any discomfort during this adjustment period.
For optimal results, it's recommended to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking (except for water), brushing, and flossing. Consistent wear ensures that your teeth are continuously moving towards their desired position.
Keeping your Invisalign aligners clean is essential for maintaining oral hygiene and preventing bacteria buildup. Rinse your aligners with lukewarm water each time you remove them and brush them gently with a soft toothbrush and mild soap. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the aligners.
